Found this online today and it was beautifully written that I had to share it with everyone. Nothing biblical in it but the message is the same. What you read, write, see, hear, and speak will always live within you. Like the Bible says…YOU CANNOT SERVE TWO MASTERS. The truth in your heart will always win out. Although life is hard, what is more hard is living a life and living with anger, jealousy, gree, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
Words and talk that I should live by as well. I really do struggle with resentment. I always replay moments in my life were people have wronged me or have taken advantage of me. I am always there for everyone and Lord knows when something is wrong in their lives, I am the one who is there. In my darkest moments or moments of celebration, I have been alone. What am I feeding my mind? Resentment. What do I need to let go off…resentment.
Today is one of those days where I feel that “something great is going to happen this week.” Its a weird feeling. There are just times in your life that you hear the Holy Spirit speak a little more clearly and for me, today was one of those times. I dont know what will happen. I am at a good place right now and we all know that was not always the case. I love my job, my kids are thriving at school, my wife is awesome, and I even got the NFL Sunday ticket this year (though the Giants are 0-2 to start the season). It will be interesting to see what will take place this week.
Even if nothing “special” happens this week; just being able to have that moment with the Holy Spirit this week has already made this week awesome. Have a great week my brothers and sisters in Christ. Remember, we are the face of Christ on this side of heaven. PJSLB
I come to church today full of scars. I remember the years in church screaming and begging for a breakthru. Instead, life was full of challenges and false starts. I never understood the journey I needed to take but I was strong in my faith (even when life told me I am crazy).
Today, I sit here in church with my breakthru. You would think after waiting for all these years, i would be “over the moon”. The thing is, I feel the same. My love for God is still the same, my trust in God remains. The only difference is I have more scars and more stories to share about how God provided in the end.
Have a great weekend my brothers and sisters in Christ. PJSLB
